Alexa's new Whisper Mode goes live

At Amazon's Alexa event last month in Seattle, the company teased a new feature soon coming to its voice assistant: the ability to whisper. The company demonstrated how whispering a request - like "play a lullaby" - to Alexa would trigger the voice assistant to respond in kind. Today, Amazon says Whisper Mode is officially going live.
